Cam Akers rushes for 90 yards and a touchdown in playoff loss to Packers

Cam Akers rushed 18 times for 90 yards and a score and caught his only target for another six yards in a 32-18 divisional round loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Akers handled 100% of the running back carries for the Rams in this game and has been a workhorse back since Week 13 of the regular season. With head coach Sean McVay seeming to hand over the reigns of the backfield to Akers down the stretch, it's clear he's going to be the feature back in 2021, and has a chance to become a top-10 running back given his talent and opportunity.

Cam Akers rushes for 131 yards and TD in Wild Card win over Seahawks

Cam Akers rushed 28 times for 131 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-2 targets for 45 yards in a 30-20 win over the Seahawks in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Akers received 76% of the RB carries with Malcolm Brown receiving the other 24%. Akers has now been a workhorse for the Rams since Week 13, and should continue to shoulder the load in the divisional round of the playoffs, most likely against the Packers should the Saints take care of business at home against the Bears.

Cam Akers does nothing with team-high 21 carries

Cam Akers carried the ball 21 times for 34 yards but caught all four of his targets for 54 yards during the Rams win over the Cardinals in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

With Jared Goff (thumb) forced to miss the game, the Rams leaned heavily on Akers, though he wasn't able to find any room. He is clearly hampered by his sprained ankle, though he did manage to make an impact in the receiving game. He now has six days to heal before the Rams take on the Seahawks in the NFC wildcard game on Saturday.

Cam Akers (ankle) is active for Week 17

Cam Akers is active for Week 17's matchup against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

With Darrell Henderson out, Akers could end up seeing a sizeable workload in this matchup, although his gametime decision tag makes him a risky play. Malcolm Brown should be expected to see the bulk of the carries as he’s the healthiest of the two backs, but Sean McVay could opt to ride their electric rookie in a game with heavy playoff implications. Akers makes for a risky play in fantasy leagues but has a high ceiling if he receives a big workload.

Cam Akers (ankle) expected to try and play in Week 17

Rams RB Cam Akers (ankle) is expected to try and play against the Cardinals in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Akers is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and was listed as questionable entering the weekend. The rookie being active would cap the fantasy ceiling of Malcolm Brown.
